May 15, 1950 - Old Ray Tursky steals show in 'cycle meet: Resilient Ray Tursky, no mere stripling - he will shortly become eligible to collect social security benefits - more than matched his advance publicity by out-stripping the field in the expert class, to the delight of an estimated 2,500 witnesses, in the Green Bay Motor cycle club's race meet at the De Pere fairgrounds Sunday afternoon.

And the ageless Madisonian, who bears a strong resemblance to the Packers' immortal Johnny Blood.

Tursky, defending state champion - fought his way through the hottest field of expert drivers ever to grace the De Pere oval while riding high on the curves the most dangerous place on the track.

A total of 65 riders, 14 experts, 11 amateurs and 40 novices, competed.
